David Anderson's Histories of the Hanged is the first full account of the guerrilla war that determined who should inherit Britain's most troublesome African colony.

ANDREW NATHAN, ED.
The Tiananmen Papers
2001. 1st Edition, Hard Cover. Fine/Very Good. The Tiananmen Papers.Andrew Nathan, Ed. 2001. Hardcover, 510 pages. Fine/Very Good. A very clean, smart copy. Tightly bound, unmarked pages, jacket has very light shefwear to top edge. THE TIANANMEN PAPERS, which contains documents unearthed from the guarded core of the Chinese Politburo, is the most important book on China published in decades. It reveals the highest-level processes of decision-making during the tumultuous events surrounding the terrible massacre in Tiananmen Square on 4 June 1989. Drawn from about 2,000 documents, THE TIANANMEN PAPERS have been compiled and edited as part of an extraordinary collaboration between America's most prominent China scholars and a handful of Chinese people who have risked their lives to obtain them. The Chinese pro-democracy demonstrations in 1989 were the longest lasting and most influential in the world. THE TIANANMEN PAPERS exposes the desperate conflict during the period among a few strong leaders, whose personalities emerge with unprecedented vividness. Its revelations of the most important event in modern Chinese history will have a profound impact not only in China, but in every country in the world that deals with China. Quantity Available: 1.

 EVGENII V. ANISIMOV, The Reforms of Peter the Great
EVGENII V. ANISIMOV
The Reforms of Peter the Great
Routledge, 1993. First Edition, Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. 9781563240478 Top corner clipped from front endpaper, pages otherwise clean and bright; light wear to jacket edges, some surface scratching to front. This exciting and psychologically penetrating account of the life and rule of Russia's eighteenth-century tsar-reformer develops an important theme. What happens when the drive for "progress" is linked to an autocratic, expansionist impulse rather than a larger goal of human emancipation? What was the price of power - for Russia, and for Peter himself? Evgenii V. Anisimov's provocative history of Peter thus asks important questions with special resonance today. 344 pages.

SOFIE BAK
Nothing to Speak Of. Wartime Experiences of the Danish Jews 1943-1945
The Danish Jewish Museum, 2014. First Edition, Softcover. Near Fine Condition/No Dust Jacket. Top corner clipped from front endpaper, otherwise clean bright and unmarked, an excellent copy. In October 1943, Adolph Hitler ordered the mass arrest of Jews in Denmark.

Based on more than one hundred interviews, "Nothing to Speak Of" sheds new light on this rescue operation, telling the story of what happened to these survivors after October 1943. This richly illustrated volume is the first to deal with the long-term consequences of escape, exile, and deportation during this harrowing time for Danish citizens, uncovering deep and painful memories that still haunt many survivors today.

Juliet Barker's new book is a magnificently readable account of the last four decades of that war, and a reminder that the reality was much nastier than the myth...Barker disentangles the dark threads to tell a story that never flags.

 MARTIN BARNES, Benjamin Brecknell Turner: Rural England Through a Victorian Lens
MARTIN BARNES
Benjamin Brecknell Turner: Rural England Through a Victorian Lens
ABRAMS, 2001. Hardcover. Fine Condition/Near Fine. 9780810965836 Clean unmarked pages, firm binding; unclipped jacket with slight creasing to rear lower edge. A nicely-kept copy. Filled with lovely scenes of 19th-century England, this beautiful book is a nostalgic glimpse of a vanished world through the lens of Benjamin Brecknell Turner (1815 -- 1894), one of the first, and one of the greatest, of early British photographers. A tranquil stillness pervades Turner's evocative images of churches, cottages, old farm buildings, and ancient ruins. In stark contrast are his shots of the radically modern, long-gone Crystal Palace in London's Hyde Park. Also here are his subtly toned portrait photographs, and his 1857 pictures of Amsterdam that are among the earliest known photographs of that city. This first monograph on Turner's work accompanies an exhibition in early 2002 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. 112 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
